Engine lift waiting on engine

11/29/2021 – No news on shipment of the new engine as yet. I guess it will probably take a while longer. Today was a day to continue cleaning parts. The spark plugs were cleaned and regapped. They appeared to show that the carb is pretty rich so that will need some adjustment after reinstallation. The next part to get cleaned was the distributor. I was careful to not get mineral spirits in the distributor. Don’t know if that would be bad but better safe than sorry. Then it was time to try to clean the intake manifold. It has become badly stained since it was power coated. For about 10 seconds there was consideration about having it redone, but it passed. Since there is no hurry, I quit for the day. The only thing left to clean is the firewall in the engine bay. Some Simple Green and a few towels should do the job. I may remove the oil sump and pick up tube for cleaning so they will be ready to install after the timing cover. As can be seen the shop is a total mess The piston supplier is apparently the current holdup on finishing the work by the machine shop. It is anyone’s guess as to when the supply chain will get well. We can all hope. See Jim’s message on the next page...
